Time to make a change...
Look at today's watch market and you'll find two options:
- Pay through the nose for a watch that will be too precious to see the light of day
- Choose a low quality, cleverly marketed watch that would look worn and cheap within a few months of purchase.
Becoming frustrated with the situation, we set about creating a true, premium quality, stylish watch that could be worn all day, every day, without it costing the earth.
After a year of designs, prototypes and tweaks, using our backgrounds in finance and engineering to ensure we're maximizing quality while minimizing the price tag; it’s fair to say we have succeeded - We're proud to present an elegant, functional and stylish timepiece with built in water-resistance, scratch-resistance and shock-resistance.
Far from just a pretty face.

What's in the box?
As a brand, our mission is to combine quality and affordability, and present it within a watch that you would be proud to wear all day, every day. To help achieve this, our partnered manufacturer has over 20 years’ experience in the industry.
Sapphire Crystal Glass - Good luck scratching this one. Knocks and bumps happen, this won't be something to worry about with our watches.
Japanese Movement - Complete with centre chronograph for real life usability, our quartz movement is a real workhorse with longevity and accuracy.
5 ATM Water Resistance - For that added durability in all conditions. When we said every day, everywhere, we meant it.
316L Stainless Steel - Surgical grade, corrosion resistant stainless steel to ensure your timepiece stays 'day 1' fresh.
Interchangeable Leather Straps - We know styles change, but your watch shouldn't have to. All our leather straps have a hidden quick release design for an instant switch up.
Flawless Style - This hasn't happened over night. Through various prototypes and iterations we have made sure we are proud of what we present. It wasn't always easy, but boy was it worth it.
One of the ways we have managed to keep our quality high and prices low is to cut out the middle men and use Kickstarter to sell our products directly to you.
By using a direct-to-customer approach, we have managed to cut out distributors, wholesalers and retail stores, meaning you get exactly what you pay for.
Having been working on this for over a year, we are very proud to introduce our debut collections. (We'll be reaching out towards to end of the campaign to get your exact order choice, for now just select either the metallic or leather collection in the rewards section).

Risks and challenges
The obvious risk here is manufacturing delays and defects. We have been working with our manufacturing partner for over a year, through multiple iterations of the design and have built up a very good relationship. It hasn't all been plain sailing, but we've learned from every bump in the road and are confident in our now silky smooth process.
The main challenge of the project itself was keeping quality up and keeping cost down. We do not want to become another "because you can't afford more" watch brand, we want to become your watch brand.
We decided to make the watch we wanted to make - a watch we would be proud to wear - and tackle the cost from there. We think we succeeded.
We will be shipping from the UK to wherever you are. Although the cost of the pledge covers shipping, we cannot cover all individual import duties.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
